The flames of passion cannot be quelled
Even though they were watered in a
World called cruel.
Searching for the word called fame
I seek out your name 
In the pages of a book called flame,
Attraction, magnetism, together floss
A light called love is ignited.

Deep deep in the starry night,
The darkness yields to the consuming vital essence of 
This light
Death a story
Life a reality…
Ties that bind
Love’s the tie,
Even though it seems non-existent,
For many don’t believe in it
And have lost faith in it.
Confused, they trod about life aimlessly
They sought for meanings
In the pages of books to define their lives,
Yet the answers are non-existent
And even if they are,
The answers fritter away in their very fingers.

Let’s not be blinded
Let’s not be fooled 
True love exists somewhere
Waiting for us for us to grasp it
Let’s open our eyes widely to it
For it pieces hearts together.
Loves defines, love gives meaning to life
Heart pieced in unison
No matter how hard we try,
The bond keeps resurfacing
That’s the price of unity.
